This song is the cheerful way I want to begin 2013. As a little girl I would sing this a lot, it still makes me feel really happy.
The Disney Movie this song is included in (Song of the South 1946) does bring controversy about slavery and Disney has shelved bringing it out for us to purchase. Although I NEVER knew any of this as a child, I just thought the music was so happy with the little blue birds!!
Zip A Dee Doo Dah won the academy award for best song in 1947.
On Wickipedia it names about 30 artists who have sang this song and the song has been used in numerous other pictures and Disney specials.
Disney had just started adding animation with live characters and received rave reviews for this.
The song also inspired Splash Mountain at the Disney theme park.
Hope this puts a cheerful tune in your step today.
